Tasting Notes:

This 100% Shiraz with its warm sweet spicy flavours and dark fruit notes shows a fine balance between fruit and tannin. This Shiraz is very well balanced and ends with a rich, full mouthfeel and creamy aftertate. The wood is well integrated and the fresh acidity compliments this wine.

Between two mighty oceans, on the southern tip of Africa, lies the historic Saxenburg Wine Farm. Here, memory and the seasons conspire with the cellarmaster’s craft to produce unique wines of consistent and exceptional quality. For centuries wayfarers bound for the East Indies found hospitality and relief at the Fairest Cape. At Saxenburg we extend this tradition and invite you to visit our world.

Trellised, no irrigation, ‘vendange vert’ for lower yields and smaller berries.
